BODYSHOP HAUL

Good morning beautiful souls,

I recently purchased some new Bodyshop goods, products I haven’t tried before. I thought about doing a first impressions post, but then decided to try them out a little first before reviewing them. So without further ado, here’s what I thought:

Waterproof Mascara –

I’m going to be blunt – I hate it and definitely will not be repurchasing this again! Saying that I like the brush, it makes for a an easy application and creates good lash length. However the product itself leaves me with dark circles under my eyes quite quickly and removing it at the end of the day is practically impossible without ripping out half of my eyelashes!

Lipgloss –

I didn’t need a new lipgloss but this beautiful shimmery metallic rose tone just wanted to be bought haha. The application brush is a works really well and the lipgoss has a nice consistency and sparkle to it without being uber shiny and sticky which I hate.

Vitamin E Face Cream –

I’ve been really enjoying this face cream as it is nice and light and doesn’t feel like it clogs up your skin. The reason I picked this though is because it has an SPF 30. It’s important to remember to protect our skin from the UV rays in autumn and winter too when the sun and sunburn aren’t as obvious! I use this every morning and am very likely to repurchase!

Primer –

I’m going to admit I one of these people who doesn’t really pay much attention to primers, I mean I understand what they do, but as to whether my makeup is really smoother or stays on longer, I really couldn’t tell you. Saying that it does make the application process easier and does seem to soften and even out the skin well.

Have you tried any of these products?! I’d love to know ๐Ÿ™‚

BODYSHOP HAUL

Good evening guys,

It’s time for another haul!

The Bodyshop recently had a promotion on, where if you spent ยฃ50 you got ยฃ25 off. To top it off I had ยฃ5 on my loyalty card to spend, so of course I didn’t need anymore reasons to have a browse. It was the perfect time to stock up on some items I needed and buy a couple of treats. I am one of those people who shops for little stocking fillers and birthday bits & bobs throughout the year when I see things I like.

So without further ado, here’s what I bought:

Vitamin E Gentle Facial Wash

After having tried the vitamin E toner and loving it, I really wanted to try some more products from the vitamin E range. My facial scrub was running low and so. I went for this gentle face wash. So far I am enjoying using it; it definitely is very gentle. It’s texture is like a light face cream rather than a foaming wash, so when I first used it I got confused, wondering if I had bought face cream instead of face wash, but no I checked and the bottle definitely said facewash aha.

Vitamin C Glow Protect Lotion

I have yet to try this but I’m really looking forward to it. The reason I picked this up is because of its SPF 30. I find in autumn and winter we often forget about the sun and neglect the fact that UV rays can still damage our skin, so its important to remember to give your skin some loving. Thus I thought this SPF 30 face cream would be the perfect way to protect my face!

Vitamin E Hydrating Toner

This is my second bottle and I love it. The Vitamin E formula is soothing and gentle on the skin. It’s great for removing those last bits of remaining make-up whilst tightening the skin and making it feel fresh.

Atlas Mountain Rose Fragrance Mist

I have fallen in love with the Bodyshop’s fragrance mists! This is the third one I own now (ooh maybe I’ll do a perfume post sometime soon)! Anyway these fragrance mists are the perfect spray to make you feel and smell fresh, without costing you the earth! Rose has always been one of my favourite scents and flavours so this was a must!

Matte Lip Liquid – Nairobi Camellia 034

It has been years since I’ve used yet alone bought a lipgloss however when I saw this matte lip liquid in the shade Nairobi Camellia I had to try it! I am a big fan of browny red shades in quite natural tones. I haven’t tested the longevity of this yet but I like the shade, it’s perfect for a neutral Autumn makeup look and it’s easy to apply.

Hand Cream Stocking fillers

These little hand creams are what I call the perfect stocking fillers. I often stockpile little gifts for Birthdays and Christmas and these cute 30ml tubes are perfect! Rose and coconut are two of my favourite Bodyshop scents so of course I would choose these to add to my gift box at home. My gift box is where I store all the little presents I buy throughout the year for when the occasion arises that I need a gift for someone, or if I see something that is perfect for a certain person I will buy it and put it into the box till it’s Christmas or their birthday!

Well that’s all from my ยฃ50 Bodyshop haul! What are your favourite Bodyshop items? Any in particular you’d recommend?I’d love to know!

Wishing you all the best Sunday!

Love Carina xo
